Score the run.

The reason you feel like it's not a run is likely that you mistakenly consider an appeal of leaving early a force play, and the logic on a force play would nullify the run. Disabuse yourself of that notion - an appeal of a runner leaving early is NOT a force play (even though you only have to touch the bag) - it's an appeal play, and appeal plays are timing plays.
"Many baseball fans look upon an umpire as a sort of necessary evil to the luxury of baseball, like the odor that follows an automobile." - Hall of Fame Pitcher Christy Mathewson
